Report card on conditions and trends

The Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia’s (DAFWA) ‘Report Card’ publications provide a comprehensive health check on the condition and trend of land and water resources in Western Australia, as well as pests and diseases and rangeland condition.

Report cards draw on existing data from DAFWA and industry, and provide an opportunity to use robust scientific evidence to analyse the status of our agricultural land. They also assist DAFWA to prioritise investments in sustainable land management, help to optimise responsible and productive farming systems, and protect land and water resources for future generations.
